Protein Hype

Did you know only about 20% of our muscles are made up of protein?


The rest is made up of carbohydrates, fats and minerals.


Stop focusing so much on protein and focus on wholefoods!


Yes protein is essential, and vital for our overall health including satiety, recovery, repair, growth and more.

But...

If all we are eating is protein and lacking other key nutrients, our muscles will still suffer.


Did you also know that our body cannot effectively use more than about 2g per KG of protein?

Ideally our protein intake should be between 15 to 35% of our overall intake. When I work with clients, we start with a base of 25% and review, reassess and change if needed.


So include more fruits, veggies, whole grains, nuts and seeds in your diet, and stop purely focusing on protein ;)
